So-Ham Meditation

About the practice

So-Ham Meditation is a practice which helps to explore yourself and to feel the intercommunication between your physical body and subtle bodies. A special method of articulating So-Ham Mantra described in ancient indian scriptures helps you to feel it.

So-Ham Meditation awakens your body’s internal energy reserves, increasing stamina of body and mind.

This practice is for those who want to develop his meditation techniques and deepen knowledge about himself. For centuries So-Ham Meditation has been used by hermits in ashrams for achieving high concentration. This practice can also fit those who have just begun their path in meditation because it is simple, easy to learn and brings its positive effect quickly.

Structure of the lesson

The lesson consists of three phases, each of them helps you to go deeper and deeper, on that level where “So-Ham” starts to sound within you itself. Sound vibration of your vocal cords seem to interlace with your deep breath, activating Anahata and Vishuddha Chakras.

Syllable “SO” means “God” and is pronounced when inhaling. Syllable “HAM” means “Me” and is pronounced when exhaling. So, you repeat “I am God. God is inside Me”, - many times, over and over again while meditating.

Repetitions of the “SO” syllable helps to open heart chakra Anahata, its energy; it helps you to get rid of depressive thoughts and memories. This practice helps to balance the 4th chakra completely. People whose heart chakra is open are full of love, compassion and are able to forgive. And vice versa, people whose heart chakra is unbalanced or closed, have a tendency to accumulating anger, sorrows, hatred and jealousy. All these manifestations of the 4th chakra need to be healed.

Repetitions of syllable “HAM” helps to open the throat chakra – Vishuddha. This chakra stands for self-actualization. In case it is closed, one feels depressed because of having no self-expression, not articulating his needs and wishes. This Mantra helps to express yourself, according to circumstances. Vishuddha also stands for your energetic and informational impact on people, it increases your communicational power. So, when the vibrations of “HAM” open it, when your 5th chakra is healed, it increases your communication skills, your relations with people around, and ultimately it increases your influence on the world around you.
